Springsteen rocks New Orleans Jazz Fest, just five shows left

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played the New Orleans Jazz Fest today.

From live streams during the concert, it looked like it was a beautiful day for the outdoor festival setting. The setlist was pretty standard, as it often is for the festivals where Springsteen is on the bill with a variety of acts. Patti was there; Stevie was not. In a weird turn of events, Steve VanZandt tweeted during the concert, saying he wouldn't be able to make any of this year's American dates and thanking Tom Morello. Is qualifying these dates as "American" a clue or is he just referring to the ones the band already played off U.S. soil.

Next up is Houston on Tuesday where they'll perform at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. Then they'll take a full week off before performing in New York. Graduation ceremonies at Duke University where Springsteen's daughter Jessica is a senior are next weekend May 9-11.

They'll play the Times Union Center in Albany, N.Y. on Tuesday, May 13. The next day -- Wednesday, May 14 -- they play at Hersheypark in Hershey, Penn.

Then we're at the final weekend -- May 17 and 18 -- witnh two concerts at Mohegan Sun Casino Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Springsteen minus the band is going to play a pair of concerts in Pittsburgh with Joe Grushecky and the House Rockers on Thursday and Friday, May 22 and 23.
